Aging

The mobile app, FaceApp, shows us how we might look when we get old. Those who are happy with their current looks, would like to look the same permanently. Many are already planning the parts to have fixed by plastic surgeons. If I uplift my face, will it will also uplift my soul? I look…

A Boxer

When the parents of a boxer are watching their child fight in the ring, they can send love, prayers, and blessings. They are watching their child get beaten up, yet they cannot do anything.

World Cup Champions

Even though the women’s team won the Championship, they got paid less than the men’s team. The reason being that more people watch men play football. It is not fair, yet it is true. Financial equality is not easy. We are all created by the same source, yet our pay is not the same for…
